The reboot series of the 1992 movie “A League of Their Own” has a full trailer out. This is the first full trailer for the series that has been released.
The series premieres on Amazon Prime Video on August 12. The series, filmed in Western Pennsylvania, will feature new characters and will cover important topics such as race and sexuality.
The trailer is 2 minutes and 7 seconds, and gives viewers a look into the lives and struggles of the leading ladies, who play for the Rockford Peaches.
The trailer features several moments that the women have to overcome: a coach denies two Black women from trying out, saying, “I don’t think you understand. This is an All-American league.” One of the characters, Max Chapman (Chanté Adams) replies, “We’re pretty All-American,” before throwing a great pitch. Later, Max can be seen trying out for another team, to which she is told that she needs to work at a local factory in order to play, and she does exactly that.
The women also have to deal with all kinds of rules that men do not. They can wear dresses only (no pants), they can’t drink or smoke, and they must follow an early curfew. Later, a coach says that if they want the game to be more exciting, they should give the women shorter skirts. Due to all of this, it is clear that the women will have a lot to deal with, but the way they are shown handling it looks great.
